The Tokyo Geographical Society (東京地学協会; 1879 - present) is a scholarly society concerned with geography and earth sciences. It is best known for publishing Chigaku Zasshi (地學雜誌, with the English title Journal of Geography), published 1889 - present. Chigaku Zasshi is one of the premier geographical journals in Japan. In its early decades, the society and journal focused on geography and followed the model of journals published by Western geographical societies, especially the British Royal Geographical Society. Its president were members of the Japanese imperial family, but in the postwar period this direct link with the imperial family was broken and presidents have since been prominent scientists. The journal has also expanded its focus to embrace new approaches, technologies, and topics in the postwar period.
